BEFORE


AFTER


CHICKEN CURRY CHA-CHA

Too much hurry spoils the CURRY
Gently does it; worth the wait
COOK today CONSUME tomorrow
Let the flavours marinate

Aromatics, herbs and spices
Use the best rice; Basmati
Free-range CHICKEN, plus a side of
Mango CHUTNEY, CHAPATTI

Wash it down with CHILLED Kingfisher
Otherwise Sandpiper beer
If, like me, you live in Thailand
CLASSIC CHANG provides the CHEER


CHIHUAHUA/CHIANGMAI


“SAWASDEE KHRAP” - ‘MOJO’ – DOB – DEC 2009


CHANGNOI’S CHIHUAHUA

A dog named Mojo
Neither mad, nor hard, but mard
HIS BOTTLE HAS GONE
Neither mad, nor hard, but mard
Dog with no Mojo


CHIHUAHUA SANDWICH

At first glance, it looked just like a Chicken Roll, only much much smaller.
We wanted a second opinion, so we consulted an expert.
The waitress sniffed at the plate before confirming it was Chihuahua.


CHIANGMAI NIGHTS

Thailand comes to life
On the banks of Mae Nam Ping
NIGHT TIME IN CHIANGMAI
On the banks of Mae Nam Ping
Life comes to Thailand


CHIANGMAI DAYS

In Chiangmai, 'Songkhran' is more than just a three-day water free-for-all.
Up here, they’ve been chucking the 'Nam' at each other for more than a week.
Parties everywhere and they don’t look set to finish any day soon.
